Double Apple Walnut Bread

Forgot to take a picture of this-oops! I finally got through the 7 bags of apples sitting in my garage!!
Double Apple Walnut Bread
1 cup smooth unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup sugar, plus 1 tbsp for sprinkling
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 cup peeled, cored and finely chopped apples
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Heat oven to 350. Combine the applesauce, sugar, eggs, oil, yogurt and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk well to blend. In another large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Make a well in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon and pour in the applesauce mixture. Stir just enough to combine; do not over mix. Fold in the apples and walnuts. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth top with spoon. Evenly sprinkle about 1 tbsp sugar over the top. Bake on center rack until toothpick comes out clean, 50-55 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and put it on cooling rack about 15 minutes, then remove loaf from pan and place on rack to finish cooling.
